With Residential Property Values Rising, So Is Funding For Local CPA Programs


More money will be available next year to spend on historic preservation, affordable housing, and open spaces in Springfield, Massachusetts thanks in large part to the state’s booming residential real estate market.

The budget for the Community Preservation Act program will be $2.26 million. That is almost $400,000 more than this year’s CPA fund.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Bob McCarroll, chairman of the Springfield Community Preservation Committee.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
